Kumbhalgarh has played an important role in the history of Mewar, particularly from the time of Maharana Kumbha to Maharana Pratap. It is located at a distance of 80 km north-west of Udaipur and about 48 km to the west of Rajsamand in Rajasthan. Due to the strategic location of the Fort, Maharana Pratap continued to retain his second capital here at Kumbhalgarh.
In this monograph, an attempt has been made to highlight the historical background of the Mewar State and Kumbhalgarh, its architectural heritage and also the conservation problems and their remedial measures initiated. Profusely illustrated with maps, line drawings and photographs, this monograph will be useful to the scholars, students and visitors in carrying out further detailed studies on the monumental heritage of Kumbhalgarh.
